Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the LORD God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation – Isaiah 12:2
Have you noticed how crazy your emotions are sometimes? You can be having the best day, then something bad happens and it goes from a great day to horrible. When emotions get involved, things can easily go from good to bad.
The interesting thing is that our emotions follow our thoughts. If we find ourselves overcome with fear, we need to stop and think what we’ve been thinking about. Have we been focused more on the problems going on or on God?
God wants us to trust in Him. He shares in this verse that He is our strength and song. If we think on this truth and the fact that He is our salvation, our emotions will eventually get caught up in this instead of fear. So today, if fear has been an issue in your life, be encouraged. Focus on the goodness of God and choose to let Him be your strength. Focus on God and your emotions will get in line too.
